    Well I had no luck in the other thread, but is the Evo supposed to be auto-focusing when video recording? When It's not recording, it auto-focuses on anything I'll point it at just fine, then when I hit record, and happen to move, it stays blurry and doesn't auto-focus.

    Well I was asking about VIDEO recording, not taking pictures. Try recording some video and see if it auto-focuses WHILE its recording. Mine isn't auto-focusing during recording.

    There is no autofocus while the video is recording, only white balancing. It will lock focus on wherever you aim it when you start recording. Not a bug, just doesn't have that functionality.

    Well dam aren't u a lucky one. I jus tried with a co workers evo.....and his doesnt auto focus while recording. Only when its not recording. Kind of stupid. How are we supposed to take video if it can't stay focused.
